2007 Mazda Mazda3 i Touring 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 4A)
With the kids all grown, I no longer needed a midsized car for 95% of I need a car for. The 3 seems just the right size and is a lot of fun to drive. I like the go-cart feel, and I really like the steering and suspension feel and sound on this car.
The car looks great inside and out, particularly with the sun roof and the spoiler. I really like how the suspension is tuned. The bumps and road noise are just right for my liking.
The cockpit-type front seats are cool looking, but the console is to deep for such a narrow car. Hence, I'm still trying to find the right sitting position so that my right leg doesn't push too strongly against the console edge.
